Marvel’s Avengers May Need Some Saving - OnlySP

Marvel’s Avengers looks like it has more problems than just lackluster visuals. Hopefully a strong foundation will be enough for Crystal Dynamics to turn things around. Check out OnlySP’s thoughts on the game’s E3 demo.

I just hate how much this clearly apes the MCU. If they were going for the original 5 Avengers with the addition of Captain America that would’ve been fine, but Wasp is nowhere to be seen while Black Widow is prominently featured.

Of all the characters they could’ve chosen to be one of the first faces audiences see when this was unveiled, it just had to be a character who wasn’t even that big a member of the team in the comics but definitely was so in the movies.

I’d have more faith in it if it tried to go for its own style. I’m not against shoutouts here and there, but this clearly looks as close to a movie-tie in game as you could get without actually being one.

Yeah they should have went for the comic for more inspiration yet they are clearly influenced by the MCU despite them saying it's the games own thing.

They look like cheap knock offs of the MCU actors playing them in the films, I want them to look more like their comic counter parts. Like I saw Hank Pym in a trailer and he's old, like in the films, but in the comics he came before Scott Lang so why not have the original Avenger team but with Captain America since he didn't come until a few issues later

Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant Man, The Wasp

Then add Black Widow, Hawkeye, Quick Silver, Scarlet Witch, Hercules, Black Panther, Vision and Black Knight later

I hear what you are saying but I got two thoughts:

a) Ant Man and The Wasp would technically be really difficult. If they were in their own game, you could justify spending the development costs on it.

b) There's a whole generation that aren't even that aware of the comics. However, Captain America and Iron man, Thor and Hulk would be enough to bring the crowds.

Unfortunately, for me, I really dislike the way most of them look. Ironman and Hulk look fine, but the rest look awful. That does make an impact.

Making a game like this requires a massive budget and needs to meet massive expectations so I don't envy the developers.

I agree and would've preferred a more comic inspired interpretation but with how popular thd MCU movies are with the general public they are probably hoping to bring in some of those with recognition.

The character skins look dull and drab because, we get to buy the shiny fancy colourful ones on release, for the special price of a years worth of dlc. Come on nothing is free in the gaming multiverse. Fornite is free too guys. Lol. Tell that to the poor parents hows back accounts got emptied. What kind of games put enough micro transactions, to not just lower your bank balance, but clear it out. Free game for the win.

Should give it to Insomniac

One of the Directors of Uncharted Lost Legacy is directing this game. I have every trust in him that he will do right by this IP.

AshleeEmerson1856d ago

I guess I'm the outcast here because I love what I seen on the gameplay. The fighting seems fluid, the way they switch seems awesome and the scenes themselves seem constantly cinematic. Maybe I'll know for sure when they show direct footage but as of now even from the off screen for this, it looks pretty awesome me. Perhaps a bit shallow but...

THPS 3 & 4 canceled for Diablo II Remake, and now Crash 5 canceled, too? Ah yes, we need to focus only on Call of Duty, that's the Activision way.

It's a shame, we need more games like THPS, Crash and Spyro

Michiel19896h ago

diablo 2 deserved a remake over thps 3 and 4, that's for sure and it's one of the best remakes I ever seen. Diablo 2 was still being played after 20 years, thps 3 and 4 weren't and never will.

We already got the thps 1+2 remake so I'm not sure what you want. 2 games that weren't better than their previous entry or an entry that's better than what came before and after.

This is massive shame, especially after recently learning that the NST sold a massive 20 million copies, and 4 sold a better than previously thought 5 million copies, which would have sold more imo if it was priced a tad lower and along side current gen console launch.

Profchaos1d ago

Absolutely if it was a launch game for ps5 I would of picked it up day 1 without hesitation. But I recall when it launches having so many other games to get through I couldn't justify adding more

This is likely a result of that awful microtransaction fueled non-free-to-play and non-advertised Crash Team Rumble predictably failing
